Renee is the second wife of Stan Beeman. He met her at the gym and asked her out after his divorce was finalized with Sandra. Stan and Renee hit it off because of their mutual love for sports. Philip was immediately suspicious that Renee is a Soviet illegal or at least in some capacity working for KGB, since his reports to The Center indicated Beeman was emotionally vulnerable for exploitation.

During the final season, she expressed her desire to become an FBI agent and eventually got an offer of a job interview to work in their Personnel department.  In the series finale when Stan confronted Philip, Elizabeth and Paige in a parking garage after learning their true identities, Philip revealed his suspicions that Renee may be a KGB agent. Following the clear out of the Jennings' house, Renee looked up at the house with a look on her face that appeared that Philip's suspicions may be true.
